A Nigerian native who emigrated to the United States at age 11, Alex Owumi's exploits on the basketball court lead him to a successful career as a small college player. Undrafted by the NBA, Owumi pursues his pro basketball dream overseas, eventually signing with Al-Nasr of Libya, a state-run athletic club privately funded by the family of then-Libyan president Muammar Qaddafi. Owumi's tenure with Al-Nasr is interrupted by the Libyan uprising and resulting civil war in 2011. Imprisoned in his Benghazi apartment for more than 2 weeks with no food, phone, Internet, or hope, Owumi wonders whether he will make it out of Libya alive. Despite his weakened condition and the dangers lurking in the city, he is able to escape the country. Smuggled to a refugee camp in Egypt, he is, much to his surprise, contacted by an Egyptian team seeking his services. Owumi finishes the year by helping lead the team to an unlikely league championship, earning league MVP honors in the process.
